Rob Smith, Jet Aviation group president, said, “The brand new San Juan-based FBO, with more than 20,000ft² of space including expanding aircraft parking ramp with capacity for increased traffic and future additional hangar facilities, is the perfect fit for Jet Aviation to continue expanding our reach within the region.

“We are pleased to be working with Pazos president Jose Maldonado and his team of 61 employees at its former location. Together they have built an impressive operation that delivers excellent service to customers.”

Maldonado added, “For decades, we have provided our clientele with premiere services, which are now enhanced by the company’s new state-of- the-art FBO installation. Adding Jet Aviation’s global strength, resources and management expertise is the perfect next step for us. Our longstanding success and recent expansion have been possible thanks to the hard work, loyalty and dedication of every member of the Pazos family.”
